A shot at the Women’s Strawweight Championship Belt is on the line when Claudia Gadelha takes on Karolina Kowalkiewicz Saturday night in the 2nd to last fight of the Main Card.
Both have had their chance at the current belt holder Joanna Jedrzejczyk, but neither could solve her.
Now, the winner here will get another shot at her in what should be one of the best fights on the entire card.
The significant difference in the line comes from Gadelha’s all around game being better. She has one of the best grapple games in the division and she has shown over her last few fights that her boxing skills are even top notch. It’s hard to contain her, which has led her to dominating the opposition as of late.
From the Kowalkiewicz corner, she is just getting her feet wet in the UFC. She was a top tier fighter in the European side of things and did impress in her UFC debut. She has the skill set here to compete, but will have to attack early. Sitting back just hasn’t proved to be a good idea for Gadelha opponents.
MMA Betting Pick: Claudia Gadelha -285
